The weather has been quite mild this week. A far cry from the blazing sun of summer but still warm enough to be outdoors for long periods.
We have visited Chester le Street Riverside Park twice with a picnic, supplemented with chips from the kiosk.
It's a wonderful space there. Excellent play area, paddling pool, green open space, riverside walk, ducks, swans, toilet facilities, shop and more. The play area is mainly on sand which keeps Miles very busy while Hermione can let off steam charging around the play equipment.
Today Hermione and Nana headed off to The National Glass Centre to meet with a couple of other home educating families in a workshop. They made sandcast moulds which were filled with molten glass. Their creations will be ready to collect later this week.
